Coverage Guide

1 Unit (3 Gallons) of Part A/B mixed covers a max of 500 sq/ft.
Mil thickness will vary depending on the substrate type and condition. (i.e. If porous concrete then material will be mostly absorbed, if steel then mil thickness will be heavier)

1. Surface Preparation

clean surfaces to remove all dust, dirt and grease. For highest bond strength, chemical cleaning is required (use KoreKote Surface Cleaner®)

2. Mixing

Mix 1:1 ratio by volume of Part A (resin) and Part B (hardener) together. Mix thoroughly until uniform color and consistency throughout. Mechanical Stir Stick (drill with mixing paddle) is recommended.

3. Potlife

Potlife of mixed coating is approximately 20 minutes at 70˚F if material is left as a unit in mixing container. Higher temperatures reduce potlife and accelerate curing. CAUTION: Mixing large quantities (more than a 3 gallon batch size) generates significant heat and shortens potlife.

4. Application

Begin by pouring mixed material in a straight line 2 – 3 feet from the desired starting edge of the area being coated. Use lint free 3/8” nap roller on roller frame and spread material evenly over surface. Use brush to do cut-ins along edges and corners if necessary. When material is spread out in a thinner layer, the worklife is extended to approximately 35 minutes (do not apply in temperatures below 50°F).

5. Curing

Allow coating to cure at 50˚F or higher.

6. Curing profile at 70°F

  • Gel time: 40 minutes
  • Crystallized: 4 hours
  • Cured: 24 – 48 hours (depending on temperature and application)

7. Cleanup

Use denatured alcohol (not necessary to use harmful/toxic solvents) to cleanup uncured material and tools.


Avoid contact with eyes and / or skin. Wash thoroughly after handling. Provide adequate ventilation to control vapor. KEEP OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN.


IF SWALLOWED:Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting. Call a POISON CONTROL CENTER if you feel unwell.


IF IN EYES: Rinse cautiously with water for several minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing. If eye irritation persists: Get medical advice. Immediately call a doctor.


IF ON SKIN (or hair): Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Rinse skin with water or shower. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse. If skin irritation or rash occurs: Get medical attention.


IF INHALED: Remove person to fresh air and keep comfrotable for breathing. Immediately call a doctor.


Prolonged exposure to Part A (resin) may cause allergic skin reaction on sensitive skin and possible respiratory tract irritation. Prolonged exposure to Part B (hardener) may cause an allergic skin reaction on sensitive skin.
